Monday/Tuesday's Pop-up Die Heart Card

Hi Everyone, Sandy here for Monday's Die Cutting and Tuesday's Cars Project (kinda like two posts in one!!!) . Using Sizzix Pop-up Heart Die and the Cuttlebug, I was able to make this very easy pop up Valentine's card for my hubby.

But first my tip for you: Keep a small plastic shopping bag taped to the craft table for all those scrap pieces of trash. Man, I made a mess this project, lol!

Here is the outside of the card I made...

folding the card closed...

Okay, now for some fun!!!!
 Start with a white card base and your cut out heart. Glue the little tags to the base of the card, one on either side of the middle fold score line.

Here is the die that I used

Next cut your card down to a 5x5 card size along with some patter paper for the front of the card.

For the front of the card, I cut the extra hear that is on the die and ran it through my Cuttlebug to emboss the front. I finished off with a cute Love stamp/banner and inking the edges.

To decorate the inside of the card around the pop up heart, I decided to cut some strips of paper

I glued them diagonally, covering one whole side. After they are all glued down, I trimmed the edges

For the other side, I decided to make my own design (this was Challenge #11 tech, make your own background) uing various heart stamps, sentiments. I also distress the entire card to give it a rougher, more masculine look.  Here is a picture of my mess... yes I work like a bomb just exploded on my desk!

The inside without the mess!!!!

In The Mine 12x12 Process Video // Multi Photo

Hello everyone, welcome back! My name is Katelyn and I am sharing with you some tips on how to make poorly printed photos work for you. I have a whole process video explaining all of the details as well, so be sure to check that out. This layout includes three photos that are very, very similar. Which helps tell the story. I hope you enjoy!

Some times we get photos from our home printers or from third party printing sites that didn't come out the way we anticipated. The photo in my example was not processed correctly on the right hand side which you can see in the beginning of the video. However, I figured that instead of requesting a new one and jumping through hoops that I could make it work. Please enjoy the process video below.

I created two cluster groups to help balance the page. One is over the poorly printed part of the photo and the other is on the opposite side. Balancing your page is key for an aesthetically pleasing layout! All of the products used in this project are…
